In 1994 Drs. McEachin and Leaf formed Autism Partnership to meet the tremendous need for comprehensive services to families with autistic children and adolescents. Based upon the founders’ extensive and unique experiences in providing behavioral treatment to children, adolescents and adults, they have developed the Autism Partnership Method, a progressive approach to implementing Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) treatment.
Autism Partnership’s senior staff started their work together back in the 1970’s at the UCLA Young Autism Project. Under the mentoring of Dr. Ivar. Lovaas, a pioneer in the treatment of Autism, John McEachin, Ron Leaf, Tracee Parker, Sandy Slater and Andi Waks learned their profession. They were involved in all aspects of this seminal project including development of curriculum and behavioral intervention strategies, implementing and supervising treatment, training therapists, teachers and parents, teaching classes, and conducting research.
Autism Partnership was formed in 1994 to meet the tremendous need for effective services to families with autistic children.
Based upon our founders’ extensive and unique experiences in providing behavioral treatment to children, adolescents and adults we have developed a comprehensive program that provides a variety of services.
Our directors were intimately involved in the treatment program developed at the UCLA Young Autism Project during the period of 1975-1987. Our current work incorporates the knowledge gained from the University research clinic and combines it with our more recent experience delivering services in community based settings. As knowledge about effective behavioral treatments continues to advance, we have also made innovations to increase accessibility to greater numbers of children in a variety of settings. We have extended the application of this specialized teaching methodology to children who are older. While it is clear that the optimal time to begin intervention is at the preschool age, there are many older children who have greatly benefited from intensive behavioral treatment.
